Dana Sano, GRAMMY®-nominated music supervisor of Fifty Shades of Grey, sheds light on picking songs for the sequel, Fifty Shades Darker:
"We wanted to find classic, quality, and timeless songs. Similar to Fifty Shades of Grey, we only pursued new and original music for Darker and it was important that every song on the soundtrack also be in the film. In the story, Christian and Ana have a complicated relationship so the soundtrack organically reflects that. As with the first film and soundtrack, there is something for everyone and it honors the diversity of the fans, audiences, and musical tastes. For me, the standout sleeper tracks are by Toulouse, The-Dream, Frances, and Halsey."
